If we woke up today only to find that we'd somehow been transported back 15 years to 1999, we'd be talking about Nvidia's first GeForce-branded graphics card, the GeForce 256 (NV10). In fact, Nvidia marketed the card as having the world's first GPU since it was the first to integrate a geometry transform engine, dynamic lighting engine, 4-pixel rendering pipeline, and DirectX 7 features onto the graphics chip. Returning to the present day, we're still talking about Nvidia's GeForce cards, only today's variants are much more advanced. One of them is also the topic of today's top deal -- an EVGA GeForce GTX 780 Graphics Card w/ ACX Cooler for $517 with free shipping (normally $600 - use coupon code: [EMCPHHP24]; additional $20 mail-in-rebate and Free Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag with purchase). This card has 2,304 CUDA cores and 3GB of GDDR5 memory on a 384-bit bus -- stats that would have sounded like gibberish 15 years ago.
